The Sennheiser HD 598 is a premium headphone set inspired by the interior designs of European sports sedans. Though designed to appear elegant, the HD 598 headphone set still incorporates premium-grade technologies. For instance, it uses a DuoFol diaphragm geometry that minimizes inter-mod distortion, allowing for an improved frequency response range between 12 and 38,500 Hz. Also included is EAR technology, which channels audio directly into the user’s ear; a twist-n-lock single sided cable that eliminates tangles; and a greater rest/response time for a more transient audio response. Unfortunately, the HD 598 hosts a very open design, meaning that sound leaks through it very easily.
